Stormzy stopped mid-gig in Ibiza to watch Englands World Cup penalty shootout – then celebrated by contin his set with Big For Your Boots.
A video has emerged on Twitter of the rappers reaction to England smashing their penalties win, and it is epic.
The crowd can be seen watching the tense moment, as Stormzy crouches down on stage with his hand up to his mouth trying to contain those stress levels – that pretty much everyone was feeling during the game last night.
When England made history and won the shootouts, scoring them a place in the World Cups quarter finals, Stormzy launches himself into the air as he celebrated the countrys success.
The crowd can be seen erupting into applause before the 24-year-old breaks into Big For Your Boots to a backdrop of smoke and confetti.
His fans chant the words back to him as they pound their fists into the air, with the whole set turning into a party.
England managed to survive the matchs extra time, and the game was sent to shootout – but as England havent won one in 12 years it was a nail biter.
Southgates men were on the brink when David Ospina saved Jordan Hendersons effort, but successive misses from Uribe and Carlos Bacca, whose effort was brilliantly kept out by Pickford, allowed Eric Dier the chance to put England into the last eight.
Camila Cabello’s shock decision to leave Fifth Harmony at the height of their success shook the fandom – and had everyone thinking a certain pop superstar had something to do with it.
Back in 2015, it was claimed that Taylor Swift was urging her friend to leave the band, with a source telling Hollywood Life: ‘Time and time again, Taylor has brought to
Camila’s attention that she has an amazing solo career ahead of her. It’s gotten to the point where she keeps trying to convince Camila to do a solo album.’
However, Camila has spoken out and defended T-Swizzle, saying that the rumours ‘annoyed’ her.
Speaking on The Dan Wootton Interview Podcast, the Havana singer said: ‘It annoyed me that people said she was encouraging me because I know that she probably got a lot of negative criticism for that.
‘Absolutely nobody could ever persuade me to do something. To be honest with you, she’s never ever had anything to do with that.’
She added that she and Taylor don’t even discuss their careers when they’re together, instead choosing to gossip about boys.
It was announced Camila was leaving Fifth Harmony on 18 December 2016, leaving Ally Brooke, Normani, Dinah Jane and Lauren Jauregui as a four-piece.
The group claimed that Camila had failed to turn up to group meetings and that they had endured ‘months of rejection’ from her and her management – even alleging that they found out she had quit through their management, a claim Camila has denied.
The Kinks and Argent bassist Jim Rodford has died aged 76.
His cousin and longtime bandmate Rod Argent confirmed his death on The Zombies’ official Facebook page, saying the musician had taken a fall on the stairs and passed away on Saturday.
Taking to Facebook, Rod wrote: ‘It is with deep sadness that I learned this morning that my dear cousin and lifelong friend, Jim Rodford, died this morning after a fall on the stairs. More details are not yet known about the exact cause of death.
‘Jim was not only a magnificent bass player, but also from the first inextricably bound to the story of The Zombies. An enormous enabler for us.’
He continued: ‘To the end, Jim’s life was dedicated to music. He was unfailingly committed to local music – an ever present member of the local scene in St. Albans, where he had spent his whole life.’
It is with deep sadness that we have learned that Jim Rodford passed away – he toured and recorded with the Kinks for many years and will be greatly missed. He was much loved by all of us #JimRodfordhttps://t.co/LmWFGd9ZRV
The Kinks also paid tribute to Rodford, who acted as their bass player following John Dalton’s exit from the band in 1978, writing: ‘It is with deep sadness that we have learned that Jim Rodford passed away.
‘He toured and recorded with the Kinks for many years and will be greatly missed. He was much loved by all of us.’
The moment we have all been waiting for is finally here as Ariana Grande releases her highly-anticipated music video for Thank U, Next.
And its a movie – but it didnt get the happy ending that everyone wanted.
We already knew that the video will be based on everyones favourite noughties teen movies, including Legally Blonde, Mean Girls, Bring It On and 13 Going On 30 – and we were not disappointed when finally seeing it.
If you’ve ever stopped to wonder just why 80s acts continue to be so enduringly popular after all these decades – given the number of newer, younger pop stars who have arrived to replace them – then an evening in the company of electro-pop stalwarts Erasure might just answer that question.
The duo – consisting of flamboyant frontman Andy Bell and songwriter/synth-wizard Vince Clarke – brought their current World Be Gone tour to London’s Eventim Apollo for two nights over the weekend – and in the course of an almost two-hour show proved more than a match for those 21st Century synthpop pretenders.
From the moment things kicked off – with a cheeky nostalgic nod to TV favourite Tales Of The Unexpected, before the pair (and their ever-present backing singers) launched into old favourite Oh L’Amour, much to the delight of the capacity crowd – the pace was pretty relentless as Andy and Vince reminded us just how many brilliant, brilliant songs Erasure have given us in their time.
It’s quite easy to forget just how stuffed with gems their back catalogue is, but they didn’t hesitate to remind us with a show that delivered hit after hit interspersed with newer material just as impressive as their run of late 80s/90s favourites.
Indeed, new tracks such as Just A Little Love, Sweet Summer Loving, Love You To The Sky and World Be Gone – the title track from their new album – made us realise that Erasure are still pretty hard to outdo on the synthpop front, and they sat more than comfortably alongside the crowd-pleasers we were all waiting for.
And they certainly didn’t disappoint on that front either, with the classic likes of Chains Of Love, Victim Of Love, Stop!, Drama, Who Needs Love Like That, Blue Savannah and Sometimes all stuffed into the main set – and an encore of A Little Respect which had every single person in the venue proving that they remembered all the words.
Heck, they even managed to shoehorn in a version of Blondie’s Atomic, as Andy Bell explained just how much he had loved Debbie Harry growing up.
But there was a whole lot more to this than simply a bunch of synthpop classics on a Saturday night – because Erasure don’t just give you the music but give you the whole experience, from the simple but effective neon-drenched stage (just how many different coloured lights can one band deliver in a single show?) through to Bell’s witty asides as he chatted to the audience. And, at one point, stripped off that spangly costume of his to perform the rest of the show in a snug, printed bodystocking.
Heck, the fact he can wear that in front of an audience of thousands at the age of 53 makes us fortysomethings feel so much better about our own sartorial choices now.
Zayn Maliks newest single is here, and it might be his sexiest yet.
The Dusk Till Dawn hitmaker has been working on his second album for some time, and while we still dont have an exact release date, he has given fans a treat by releasing the full version of new bop Fingers.
The song is about wanting to text a lover but seemingly being too drunk to do so. Admittedly, not the most romantic of themes, but unsurprisingly he pulls it off with some sultry deep vocals.
Cause Im fucked and I want ya, I cant even text ya, the 25-year-old sings. Cause my fingers aint working, but my heart is/ If you wanna let me know where you hiding/ I could come and love you.
The on-and-off boyfriend of Gigi Hadid has been teasing new songs on his social media pages for a while, and yesterday he posted a video of a person texting, which he captioned 8am EST.
Since dropping the song, fans have been rushing to praise Zayn for the tunes seductive lyrics and his voice.
One follower wrote: loved ur voice and music too ….im already amazed the very first part just killed me im overwhelmed.
Another added: Such a good song omg I needed this, while another simply said: DROP THE ALBUM ALREADY.
